On again, off again candidate Herbert West III announced recently on his blog that he was no longer running for governor.
West, a Democrat, said his resignation was due to health concerns although he said he would continue to post concerns about how the state was being run.
It’s the third time this year that West has said he was dropping out of the race. The first time was a publicity ploy, he said. West reversed his resignation announcement in February after four days out of the campaign.
While he has filed the initial paperwork to run, West has not completed the process and paid the almost $2,000 fee to the Secretary of State. He could change his mind again and do so by the June 10 deadline.
